ATEX grounding clamp

controls electrostatic charges

Posted on August 5, 2010 - ( views)

by Constanze Schmitz

Control of electrostatic charges in explosive areas is a recursive topic during risk analysis. Filling or discharging of trucks is often considered but small containers, like drums, tanks or FIBCs should also be taken into account.

Matis-Nomad by A Puissance 3 is a secure grounding clamp which allows to insure a correct ground connection of containers in explosive atmospheres avoiding electrostatic charges during filling and discharging operations. The ATEX design permits to control a potential spark. Once the ground connection is achieved, indicator lights are flashing on the clamp and on the wall unit, affirming a correct ground connection during the transfer phase. A version with digital outputs for automatic control is available.

The system is fitted with a spiral cable wired to the movable unit which plugs on a wall support. To optimize the use of the equipment, several wall supports can be installed in the field, to receive the movable wall unit only when the filling or discharging process needs it. A version for up to 4 containers is available.
